The Wichita Eagle‘s Michael Pearce runs a blog, Kansas Outdoors, and Thursday he posted quite an interesting piece.

According to the article, the Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks don’t know how the gator ended up in the lake.

I don’t either, and now next time I visit a Kansas lake I will think twice about noodling. I don’t want to catch an alligator.
